We did not experience any acceleration or separation. The mixture quickly became an emulsion but took a little longer than usual to come to a thin trace. The batter did turn to a bright honey mustard yellow once it was at trace. After 24 hours the color was a dark mustard yellow. The scent was a little light, but smelled amazing. The soap only reached a partial gel but still overheated through the center. After 30 days the color is a dark chocolate brown and the scent is deliciously strong.

Great… then not

I initially ordered a small 4oz sample size of this, and the cold/hot throw were AMAZING. Ordered the 16oz, and I am so disappointed. Not sure what happened, but I’m unhappy with the product I have now. When done right though, the scent’s amazing.

Not sure what happened

I'm getting minimal cold throw and no hot throw from this one. I'm not sure what could have gone wrong with this one.

Very authentic scent

This was a hit at my spring vendor shows. Sold out. It truly smells very authentic to real creme brûlée. People were commenting how they just wanted to take a bite! Keeping for fall scent too!

Delicious Baked-Goods

Smells like an ingredient you mix into a dessert. I would use for the holidays or even fall.

Strong & Delicious

This scent will make you want to bite the wax, it smells so good. I had my family fighting over who got the crème brulee test candles because they smelled so good. This is a safe bet buy for a baked-good/sweets candle.

My mouth waters when making these candles!

One of the first candles I made and still one of my favorites! Both hot and cold throw are outstanding. Top seller for me! Please, oh please, don't change a thing in this blend.

Review from Smelling The Fragrance

I will be using this scent for my Fall Collection and it smells great! Perfect for the holidays. cant wait to see how it performs after making these candles. I will be pairing it with something else. Coming back to give results of the secret mix!

Oh so good!

This has been such a popular scent in my candle line. Both CT and HT are really great with coconut soy wax in my candles and Golden 494 soy for wax melts. I recently added it to my lotion line and can't keep it in stock. Even at 1-2% safe usage, it's still a lovely amount of scent that's not overpowering.
